What I love about this show is that Felena takes each guest back to the beginning of their career (and even childhood). It's refreshing and validating to hear everyone's nonlinear career path. Plus, Selena introduces so many interesting and impact-driven women entrepreneurs.

Rank #3: Money Making Mentor & Success Coach, Deb Boulanger

Podcast cover
Read more

Deb Boulanger is the money making mentor for new women entrepreneurs. As CEO and founder of The Great Do-Over, she coaches founders in how to create programs that sell – whether they are launching a business for the first time, re-launching a business that isn’t growing, or adding new offerings to their portfolio.

Deb started her program to support the large number of women in high-end mentorship and mastermind programs who are failing to make money. She noticed that while they had acquired the marketing skills to successfully grow a business, they missed the mark with creating irresistible offerings that their ideal clients wanted to buy.

In 2017, she decided to apply the skills she learned in her 25-year career as a product launch executive to new startups. Deb is now a sought after business mentor by women who want to invest wisely in building a business that meets their revenue and lifestyle goals.

She is also the New York City Metro Chapter Director for Empowering A Billion Women by 2020 and serves on the EBW2020 leadership team.

Felena asks great questions

By Eva Jannotta - Mar 12 2020

What I love about this show is that Felena takes each guest back to the beginning of their career (and even childhood). It's refreshing and validating to hear everyone's nonlinear career path. Plus, Selena introduces so many interesting and impact-driven women entrepreneurs.

Informative and Inspiring!
